ENG H-B Hand Grip Type-B for Rod System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb quality. Great addition to my small dSLR rig! My only complaint (and it's small) is that with a bigger lens on my rig, the weight makes the grip less perfect because without being exceedingly tight, it will slip when grabbing it. This can be remedied with a two-rod clam instead of a single, so I might do that. Otherwise, this is a great grip, very comfortable, with enough customization to fit almost any situation. Again, with a 24mm lens (and 7D, with monitor and matte box on rails), this works perfectly. Adding my 70-200 just adds enough weight that I have to be mindful of the grip slipping if I haven't tightened everything enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Streamline your shoulder rig! As the common form factors of cameras have shifted from full shoulder cameras to compact camcorders, DSLRs, and digital cinema cameras, the are aesthetics of the full shoulder cameras that I miss. This replaces one of them. I am not a fan of wide handgrip crossbars on shoulder rigs. I only grip one handle anyway, since my left hand spends most of its time either on the follow focus or directly on the lens. For a DSLR rig, adding this to the rails in place of the cross-rail and handle means that my rig is slim and streamlined from front to back. That eliminates the wider berth of handles sticking out awkwardly to either side. The Varavon handgrip is solid. Despite the actual grip being bare metal, it is quite comfortable to grip. It assembles quickly. My only concn is that the grips on all the nuts for tightening the different assembly joints are not centered, and the longer side makes it a little difficult to position all the parts and then toghten them effectively as the protrusion either bumps across or, depending on preferred positioning, is blocked by other pieces and parts. It took a little creative positioning to get everything tightened down, but it wasn't impossible. This was the difference between 4 and 5 stars. Despite that one shortcoming, my rig is now much more comfortable to handle. If you want the ergonomics of a traditional camera on your DSLR rig (and you don't need the control extension of the Canon EOS Cinema series), I highly recommend this handgrip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised! A very ergonomic way to handle the camera while run & gunning or doing handheld style interviews as you would a news camera or camcorder. Extremely strong. My rig weigs nearly 20lbs and the grip alone can support the entire weight of the camera. It's also adjustable to have your knuckles facing upwards or forwards. It also slides forwards and backwards for best fit. Happy camper!
